Bible: Mark 7:24-30

A Syrophoenician Woman’s Faith

7:24 After Jesus 1  left there, he went to the region of Tyre. 2  When he went into a house, he did not want anyone to know, but 3  he was not able to escape notice. 7:25 Instead, a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit 4  immediately heard about him and came and fell at his feet. 7:26 The woman was a Greek, of Syrophoenician origin. She 5  asked him to cast the demon out of her daughter. 7:27 He said to her, “Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not right to take the children’s bread and to throw it to the dogs.” 6  7:28 She answered, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” 7:29 Then 7  he said to her, “Because you said this, you may go. The demon has left your daughter.” 7:30 She went home and found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
